Finally a positive outcome: After a 500 KM roundtrip to Vienna I got a nice used wheel, made it back home by 6:00PM and I am now enjoying a cold beer. The weather is so nice that I had to take a long testdrive, :rotf: and all is well.
The well intended moron at the wheel repair place admitted finally that he did not know how soft these wheels are. When he put it under the press to straighten it, he immediately pushed the whole center way out. i.e he bend the three cast spokes. What did he do? Took a guess and put it under the press the other way. He than trued the wheel, and did a fine job of it. That why it never occurred to me that I am dealing with a deformed wheel. I will have a conversation (via translator) with him when I return from my trip to Germany's Schwaebian Alps.
At 5AM, Side stand up and crossing Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, on to the Schwaebian Alps (west of Stuttgart) to join the German Motorcycle Touring Club for a weekend of riding and socializing. :rotf:
